Tim Krul and Jonas Gutierrez to feature for Newcastle United v Celtic in friendly today

Tim Krul

Manchester United-linked Tim Krul and Jonas Gutierrez will feature for Newcastle United against Celtic in a friendly game today.

Newcastle United caretaker-manager John Carver has suggested that Tim Krul could return to action against Chelsea at the weekend.

Netherlands international goalkeeper Krul has been out of competitive action since late November when he suffered a ligament damage during training.

However, the 26-year-old is on course to returning to full fitness and will feature in a closed-doors friendly against Celtic’s Development Squad at Newcastle’s training ground today.

Carver has said that if Krul does not suffer any problem in the game, then he could feature against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday.

Another Newcastle first-team star who will play in the match against Celtic today is midfielder Jonas Gutierrez, who has fully recovered from testicular cancer.
